Working With You

Working With You

A Personalized Approach

The first step in the process of discovering if we are a good match is to set up an initial meeting which is commonly conducted over coffee/tea at our office, your office, a restaurant, or anywhere else you are comfortable meeting. In this meeting, I’ll ask specific questions designed to develop a comprehensive understanding of things.

Active listening is key to understanding what’s important to you and your family and my purpose is not to ‘sell’ anything to you. Rather, it is to get to the core of who you are, where you’re at, and where you’d like to be in the future. Once we feel we are a good fit, we'll discuss next steps and put together a timeframe and a plan of action.

  • Morningstar Advisor Workstation
  • Morningstar Analyst Research Tool
